    I think the DR you tested had some issues...or you fell off somewhere and conked your head in a patch of some powerful-good catnip.

    Nope, better riders than me. Thing is, a DR is faster on tight dirt roads, but you pretty much have to stand to get speed, a DL you'll be 5-10kph slower on the slow stuff, 20kph faster on the open bits, but you can sit - and after ten hours the pain really accumulates on the DR.

    Wasn't me, but check the guys on dirt bikes V the guy on the DL.

    Cheers
